Abstract:

Serum levels of IL-17A, IL-33, zinc, iron and adenosine deaminase were assessed in patients with cutaneous leishmaniasis. IL-17A, IL-33 and adenosine deaminase were significantly increased in patients compared to healthy subjects. In contrast zinc and iron were decreased in sera of patients. These results suggest a role of IL-17A and IL-33 in the pathogenesis of cutaneous leishmaniasis.
